Mr. A. Baron,

London SE26 5HU.
Dear Mr. Baron,
Thank you for our letter and the enclosures. I enclose a copy
of the paper on the self-fulfilling prophecy of media information that
smoking causes illness. I hope you do manage to publish your piece
on Doll; he would have made a good Jesuit inquisitor.
I am afraid I can't find what I might have written to or about
Billig. I remember him accusing me of having given an interview to
the Beacon, and I pointed out that the interviewer had never mentioned
the Beacon, but that he was a free-lance who would try and get it into
the Guardian. I was rather surprised when it appeared in the Beacon,
or rather when Billig wrote about it having appeared in the Beacon.
I didn't know anything abnout it of course!
I also enjoyed your exposure of the "Searchlight" group. It must
have taken a long time to get all this together!
All best wishes,
A Charitable Company
